Lon­don (Live at Earl’s Court)

When Win But­ler sang The Smiths’ Still Ill in Manch­ester in 2007, he called it the “song that made me want to play mu­sic”. Seven years later, he doffs his cap to The Smiths once again. This time, though, his cover re­ally only serves to show­case the Cana­dian’s short­com­ings as a vo­cal­ist. With­out that trade­mark Mor­ris­sey growl, Lon­don re­ally is rather some­thing of a back­wa­ter.

PUFF DADDY ft MEEK MILLS I Want the Love

In­ter­scope Seems Sean Combs has shaken the Magic 8-Ball and elected to re­vert to his Puff Daddy moniker for a while. On this new track, the mul­ti­mil­lion­aire rap­per ex­presses frus­tra­tion that people won’t pay him the full trib­utes he de­serves un­til af­ter he’s dead. Puff wants us to show him some love right now. Er, sorry for your trou­bles?
